Cheap Thrillz: Under $10.00

Sometimes all it takes is that little under $10 pick-me-up.  Whether it’s a buzz-worthy drugstore beauty find, a fun piece of jewelry, a happy little tote for your groceries, or something fun for the office, it makes you smile… without breaking the bank.  (I like to buy a few at a time and keep them pre-wrapped as they also make wonderful gifts for a friend or coworker who’s having a rough day, or a birthday gift for an acquaintance.)

    Washi tape is my favorite. You can use it to decorate and dress up anything. Love cheapy items that are super versatile.

      It really is a great little item. I’m addicted, myself!

    I have that exact color of the L’Oreal Balm and love it!  Also that notebook is too cute! 🙂

    That tote is gorgeous for $4.99! I have been dying to try the dry conditioner too! Can’t go wrong with all of these items…

    • graceatwood says 8.17.12

      Yeah, it’s surprisingly durable, too! They sent me one to review and it holds a LOT!!

  4. Washi tape FTW. Also, the “you’ve cat to be kitten me right meow” notebook is under $10…I think.

    Such a fun post! Have been wanting that washi tape even though I have no idea where I’d p ut it, and that notebook is on my buy list, too. LOVE those rings.

    • graceatwood says 8.17.12

      It’s great to seal notes + envelopes… adds a fun + quirky touch!

  11. Lauren Luhrs says 8.14.12

    I have tried the Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo and thought it was a great product!  I remember there were a couple of options at Walgreens and the one I tried said “compare to Bumble & Bumble.”  Since I go through dry shampoo so quickly, I like sticking with the drug store brands!

    • graceatwood says 8.17.12

      Good to know – have you tried the Dry Conditioner yet? Seriously curious!!

  12. Sarah says 8.14.12

    Great Lash is the best (cheap + effective!) and I looovvee Washi Tape! 

    • graceatwood says 8.17.12

      totally agree – and love all the fun new colors!!

  13. Ashley Allen says 8.14.12

    I love the Suave dry conditioner. It smells the best by far!

    • Grace Atwood says 8.14.12

      Good to know – seriously DYING to try !!!

  14. Natalie Merrillyn says 8.14.12

    Dry conditioner? I want to try! Love the washi tape and the notebook!

    • graceatwood says 8.17.12

      Right? Sounds like the best idea ever.

  15. Nicole Levine says 8.15.12
